Breast Cancer

Around 900 people per year are diagnosed with breast cancer in Norfolk and Waveney1.

It is the most common women's cancer in the UK. Out of those 900, 230 on avergage, will die from the disease every year.

With earlier diagnosis and the best treatments possible, it's hoped the mortality rate can be reduced further. Currently 41% of people are diagnosed at stage 2 in the East of England 2, which gives people a much higher chance of survival.

Big C are committed to making sure the best equipment is available at our local hospitals, to ensure early diagnosis and better treatment.
